Pep would 'choose Champions League' - Salah

This is the third meeting between Ralph Hasenhüttl and Jürgen Klopp in all competitions - Klopp has won the previous two, with Borussia Dortmund against VfR Aalen in the DFB-Pokal in October 2012 and a 3-1 win for Liverpool against Southampton last season.

And Mohamed Salah doesn't believe Guardiola meant it when he said winning the Premier League was actually a bigger achievement than lifting the UCL trophy.

Liverpool haven't won the title since the Premier League was formed in 1992, with Neville winning eight titles with the Red Devils during his time as a player.

It genuinely does not concern me because it can be corrected by a little bit of money on the stadium and good decisions in the boardroom and good decisions in the recruitment department. After facing Spurs this weekend, City embark on a run of nine league games against opponents from outside the so-called "Big Six", so they could obliterate their own record of 18 straight wins and raise the bar to an impossibly high level.

City face one of their title rivals Tottenham tomorrow evening and he feels that Mauricio Pochettino's side are worthy contenders.

'Of course we would like to win the Champions League - so big respect to Liverpool.


"Honestly, it was great, " Salah said of his team's Champions League success.

"So everyone was having that special moment".

Liverpool began their campaign with a 4-1 win at home to newcomers Norwich as well as a victory against Chelsea in the European Supercup after penalties on Wednesday night, to lift their first title of the new season.

Southampton have lost their last four Premier League matches against Liverpool, conceding 11 goals and scoring just once in this run. "I was feeling like a kid whose dream comes true".

Manchester United legend Gary Neville claims that Manchester United will win the league before Liverpool.

A double still was not enough to gain an early lead in the Premier League Golden Boot race, though, as Sterling scored a hat-trick in City's ominous 5-0 demolition of West Ham.
